Currently Crafting: Holiday Cards

I love making cards. The holidays are such a great time to stretch my crafting muscles. 
I really like using non-traditional colors that just look like winter-time and not a particular holiday. Even so, the collage card is my favorite! Here's the break-down: a cream base with layers of a cardstock circle, a doily, japanese origami paper, printed cardstock, a handmade paper bow, ribbon, an ornament and a gold spritzing spray. I love the layers!
I am really into making those paper bows. They are so fun and turn out quirky and cute. Do you make or buy cards for the holidays? Or maybe you go sans cards?

Okay, I LOVE YOUR BLOG. I am definitely a new reader! I love making cards too, and have been sad because card-making inspiration is so hard for me to find (maybe because I'm more of a copier...haha). I LOVE yours though! You are amazingly talented girlie! :)

What lovely cards! I had a day with a friend where we sat and made cards until we'd used up all of our card, all the cards are a little strange, but we had fun !
